A Great Lunch Spot

We had lunch at CA on a Saturday as part of spending the day in Dunedin. This restaurant sits adjacent to the bike trail which makes for interesting people watching. We sat in the outside patio, our server was excellent and the food delightful.

Besides really great food you can sit inside in a glass patio overlooking the Pinellas Trail and watch the bikers and joggers pass by while dining. An outside patio has been added for outdoor lovers. Owned by the Bon Appetit owners you can be assured of great food and great service - I go several times a month for lunch... More

Dine here frequently. Have almost always had great food, drinks and service. Right in the heart of Dunedin , their large windows are great for people watching. Lobster rolls are great, as is their buttermilk fried chicken. Good varied menu, reasonably priced . Lots of locals. Highly recommend.

It's not cheap, but if you would like a breakfast (or lunch) a little higher upscale this is the place!

The food was good and reasonably priced. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The dining room looks out on the Pinellas bike trail with lots of interesting activity.

We had three meals, and all were excellent, and well prepared. The Belgium coffee is exquisite. We eat American. They have that. And for those more adventure some, they have those menu items as well. The ambiance was very nice, and the wait staff quite friendly.

Starting our meal with the pot stickers and Feta Alfresco was the best choice we made. The meal was downhill from there. Our party of 6 was shoved into a too small table in the very hot glass enclosed dining area. Feelings of just a nursing home cafeteria kept creeping through my thoughts. As stated, the feta appetizer was quite... More

I am terribly sorry to hear you did not enjoy yourselves. We are a small Cafe and I will be among the first to admit that we have limited seating for larger parties. I'm glad you enjoyed your appetizers & I can assure you that all of our Grouper is fished approximately 60 or so miles off shore here in... More

All their food is prepared fresh and delicious. Fish, pasta, chicken, salad and dessert are the best. All the locals go here year round. The staff is friendly and very efficient. It's been there for years and on the Pinellas bike and walking trail is right there. It's a quaint little village with specialty shops to visit before or after... More

This restaurant is right in the middle of Dunedin - food is wonderful and you get a lot of food. Average price but worth the wait. Very busy and a bit loud but a wonderful family restaurant.
